This is a terrific salad to make when you're overloaded with all those tomatoes and want something a little different
Mediterranean Tomato Salad

Serves: 6

A great compliment to lamb, Moussaka, any Greek dish. Herbs lend a Mediterranean flavor to a very colorful salad.

   1 large clove garlic
   3 large ripe tomatoes
   12 pitted black olives halved lengthwise
   3/4 cup feta cheese cubed
   3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
   1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
   1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
   1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
   Kosher or sea salt to taste
   Fresh ground black pepper to taste


__________________________________________


Halve the garlic clove and rub the inside of a large salad bowl with it...discard garlic.*

Cut tomatoes into bite sized pieces and place in bowl.

Add olives and cheese to bowl.

Add remaining ingredients, season with salt and pepper and toss.

Place in refrigerator at least 4 hours.

Warm to room temp before serving.

* I sometimes prefer to mince the garlic and add it, depending on the mood I'm in...I may also occasionally add some thinly sliced red onion.

Step by step
cut tomatoes and add to bowl with garlic (either method)



Add oregano and thyme, then cut olives and add with all remaining ingredients



Toss with all ingredients combined, taste for salt and pepper. Season if needed



Toss again and refrigerate, covered at least 4 hours.





Recipe formatted with the Cook'n Menu Planner from DVO Enterprises.
Go ahead...play with your food!
